How long to cook a stuffed, 40 pound turkey?

Seriously, we have a 40lb grass fed turkey.  Any advice on cooking time and temp for the stuffed bird?

I can't get a right answer from Butterball....only goes up to 30 lbs.....stuffed....5 1/2 to 6/14.....so yours is going to take longer at 325 degrees....do breast down and then half way thru it's going to take 2 people to turn that safely.  Be carefull that size turkey is going to be very hot.  I just found a lady on the net and she baked it at 350 for 6-7 hours and turned it over.........let it rest 20 minutes before cutting.  Check at the leg to make sure the juices are running clear...not pink
